The White Rose

By: Caileb Owens


The White Rose, founded in 1942, was an anti-Natzi group of students and professors from the German University of Munich. It was created by Hans Scholl, Sophie Scholl, and Cristoph Probst. The White Rose created leaflets that disregarded the Natzi party and even created grafitti on university walls and the surrounding enviorment. Eventually, the White Rose leaders were caught distributing leaflets by a janitor who turned them in to the Natzi police force. The White Rose, in total, lasted two years, from 1942-1943.
